Installing ardour and installing in general...

http://forums.opensuse.org – I want to try out ardour, as I'm trying to turn my laptop into a fully functional music studio, using opensource software. Ardour wants to downgrade a LOT of things on my computer, most of which I don't know what is.Some of it I do know. Fx it wants to downgrade the Compiz interface or something like that. It also changes other things, fx media libraries. I can make do without Compiz. Thats ok. But I'd be very sad if Songbird stops working or if I can't watch movies anymore. So lets say I install Ardour and the whole computer goes to hell. I can't watch movies or listen to music anymore. Will uninstalling it undo the downgrades? Like will my system be restored to the state it was before the installation of Ardour? Daqar (Distributions)
